Re: Very odd trees

Yes, Joshua Trees are odd looking and they're pretty common to deserts of California and the southwestern states.
Thanks for the visit, alpinelight.

Re: Very odd trees

They even have them in the Virgin River
Gorge of Arizona, but a larger number are
seen in southern Nevada and California.

Re: Very odd trees

I've been through the super narrow Virgin River Gorge a number of time, but I couldn't take my eyes off of the road for a second. You know about the traffic there. So, you are saying that there are Joshua Trees up on hills around there, Larry?

Re: Very odd trees

Yes, Marc:

It's called the Virgin River Gorge Recreation
Area, located at the "Cedar Pocket" interchange off of I-15.

I was surprised to find a "spanking" new BLM
campground the last time I was there.

There's a trail that descends hundreds of
feet down to the banks of the Virgin River.
You can view a multitude of amazing Joshua
trees in that area.

I know ... most drivers speed PAST that
area on their way to Bryce and Zion ..
